STALLGATE Brand Ambassador: Semeli Popp
We are delighted to announce that the first STALLGATE Brand Ambassador is the lovely and much talented Semeli Popp.
We couldn’t be more excited to be working with Semeli and following her on her journey as a show jumper. Her passion for and commitment to the equestrian lifestyle is genuine, infectious and energetic. Young, fresh, kind and hardworking, she reflects the values that STALLGATE embraces and we can’t wait to share her journey with you.
Over to Semeli now to tell you a bit about herself:
I was born in 2006 and I remember myself on a pony in the age of three. My sister Selini was always my idol. And I was her strictest judge. Sitting on the fence next to training or competition arenas for at least five years before competing myself, I was always seeing “the perfect stride” and knew “in theory” how to jump best the highest fences. My passion for horses and the sport got even worse when I had the opportunity to train with the rider and trainer I always admired the most, DraskoDokic. With patience, love and respect for horses and hard work he made me the rider I am today.
2019 was a great year!
We won the Greek Championship in the Children’s class with my amazing mare Arabella II, with Adrian Balboa we were second. With Arabella II we were part of the Greek National Team in the Balkan Championship in Turkey and finally won the Panhellenic Championship in December.
Our goals for 2020, together with my new trainer Avgerinos Linardos are the Greek Championship, The European and Balkan Championship and some shows abroad together with my two mares, Arabella II and Coco 274.
And because my horses DESERVE ONLY THE BEST, I am thrilled that STALLGATE will sponsor my horses with their great products, Warming pre-workout Massage Gel and Cooling Relief Massage Gel. Their wellbeing is my happiness!
